These pressure-actuated valves control the flow of the water to the nozzle(s). During bypass mode, all of the water is directed back to the supply; however system pressure remains constant (or slightly higher). This valve is typically used for applications which require frequent on/off action, such as a car wash application. However, they are more frequently used in applications that require a constant pressure at the point of use. They also are used whenever the driver of the pump is turned on/off, such as misting systems. While slightly different design concepts are used, typically these unloaders will actuate at 5 to 20% above the operating pressure of the system.
Flow ranges are from 0.5 GPM (2 l/min) to 625 GPM (2366 L/min) and pressure range is from 100 PSI to 50,750 PSI (7 to 3500 Bar). In lower pressure applications, a manually adjusted spring is used to control the flow; however, pneumatic and electric controls can also be used. Typical metal materials are forged brass, 303 stainless steel, 316 stainless steel and elastomers will be either Nitrile, Viton or Teflon.
